cavuto. unless john kerry pulls a silly was he can wall into his new office now. expected to easily get confirmation to run the state department but with scant discussion of our screwups in the state department. and it's not just hillary clinton getting it yesterday. it's almost as if everyone is looking at the threat facing thousands of americans and saying, it's no threat today. that worries former top diplomat casey mcfarland. it is the stupid of them. >> good to have you here. >> thank you. >> what do you make of this? >> a great opportunity. why? yesterday's especially, and even today, the focus is not on the problemmed of the future. especially yesterday when i grilled secretary clinton. it was talking points and timelines and stuff that really -- that train has left the station. we need to focus on the next four years, because if we don't, the bus will come off the trolley and secretary-to-be kerris going to have a hard item with the spread of terrorism in africa. hostage taking throughout the world, a nuclear iran. north korea will have long-rangl the other things happening with

been sent over to the senate. the nominations of john brennan for cia, chuck hagel, and john kerry and jack lew for treasury. that is a big deal in the weeks ahead. bret: it is a tradition. these nominations have been out there and but they are formally made it to the senate so they can hope that the senate will move forward in the days ahead and confirm his new cabinet. as you know, there could be some roadblocks there. questions republicans about jack lew being nominated for treasury secretary. they are not happy about the way some of the budget negotiations have gone in the past. of course, the debt ceiling in that debate will be hanging over those hearings. john kerry coming in, nominee for secretary of state. as chris mentioned, hillary clinton will be testifying on capitol hill, both the house and senate leader on benghazi. a lot of lingering questions on now. finally coming you mentioned chuck hagel as well. a lot of questions for him and his stance towards iran and israel. he has already asked so many of those questions on the sidelines. certainly it is usual that the presi
'll be able to welcome you one more time when you come tomorrow to be part of introducing senator kerry to the committee. so we look forward to welcome you t well. i think there are several takeways here that are incredibly important. one is, is that we have to look at the totality of the threat environment versus just looking for a specific credible threat when we are thinking about the protection of our foreign service personnel. and i see that we are moving in that direction. the other one is the changes in the department have clear lines of authority and responsibility for security matters. instead of silos, looking more at a horizontal nature. i understand that is underway. a lot has been said about resources here. secretary gates used to famously argue that there are more people in military bands than in the entire foreign service. it seems to me that surely we can find the funds to protect our diplomats who serve on the front lines. and i am concerned when the arb says that the state department has been engaged for years in a struggle to obtain the resources necessary to carry ou
, perhaps less inclination for american intervention. senator john kerry isine as a shoo-in to replace secretary clinton. the president's pick of chuck hagel sends a similar message -- he's a republican, but his past statements on israel and iran and his opposition to the troop surge in iraq will likely make for a heated confirmation process. if confirmed, hagel will likely lead major budgetary belt tightening at the pentagon. in the second term, many look for one last big push -- immigration reform. >> the second term offers the president to be more risky, i think in terms of policies that they know are politically changing like immigration reform. >> with a growing latino vote, putting additional pressure ahead of 2016. >> the growing number of latinos and how they will affect the elections puts a lot of onous both parties to get something done. >> others feel the time has passed for big, bold moves. >> this gridlock in washington is very real. it is not going anywhere. the president has to wake up, determined not to be a lame duck president. >> he will be huddled with advisers, whit
to take them away. >> megyn: wow. joining me now to discuss it, mark hanna, former aide to john kerry and president barack obama's campaigns and tony, from talk radio news service, tony? >> wow, i actually also make tv ads for a living, megyn and obviously, sometimes you do take creative license, but in that particular ad two things bothered me he the most the images of sandy hook, we know what we felt, every american with a heartbeat. and anti-gun groups really are now trying to guilt people into a position, and how much do you restrict and limit the second amendment. and number two the words they omitted and music added to the background. he said my grandfather had a gun to stop a lynching and my father had this rifle to protect our family. and creates an impression he's he a cowboy who misuses or abuses rather, his second amendment right and it's irresponsible and troubling this is the tempo for the debate. if you rightfully own a gun and believe in the second amendment you somehow are complicit or nefarious person and complicit with the sandy hook massacre. >> megyn: mark? >> nobo
senator clinton will testify before the senate with the kerry confirmation coming right behind. there will be a lot of focus on the state department and the systems and the internal accountabilities and, it feels to me, like a lot of this was because of just a state department that is stovepiped. it is almost full of sclerosis and unable to attend to the issues of security and make decisions that need to be made in this regard. i think you know --. bill: but with that, to that regard, senator. >> okay. bill: there seems to be this constant theme about folks in washington wanting to know whether or not she was aware on the decision-making as to whether or not adequate security was in place in benghazi. >> right. bill: is that not the heart of this? >> i don't think there is any question she will be asked that especially with some of the cables we've all known about from chris stevens and some of the concerns and the fact, you know, the first thing that people up here want to talk about, bill, is money. that is the very first thing that came out of the arb. that was really disurg
this has been settled. and senator johnson as john kerry pointed out today didn't know what happened he skipped the intelligence briefing that would have actually given him the answers that he was looking for yesterday. >> megyn: all right, give you the quick final word, mark. >> sure, i used to write these statements at the white house and what you say is, look, we don't know exactly what happened, there are some reports that say it was a protest and other reports is a that say otherwise, here is what we know right now and as we get more details we'll tell you if they had stuck to that basic principle they wouldn't have trouble. they wanted to believe the spin that al-qaeda was decimated, they're not decimated. >> megyn: sadly. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> megyn: up next, serious questions about privacy and the secretary amendment as one lawmaker proposes a plan that would require parents to tell schools if they own a gun and would punish them if they don't. it's coming up in a little bit. new data showing a sharp decline in union membership in this country are the president's o
kerry, soon to be secretary of state, he could be fascinating to see how he approaches this hearing. will he be protective of the department he is soon to inherit? will he be protective of his predecessor and look for more aggressive questioning on the house side. they want to know how far up the chain of command this went. back to you. >> brian: comprehensive report, if i was to pick a favorite sound bite, it would be your first one. i thought it was right to the point. i thought the questions were right on. >> steve: the interview of the guy did you? >> oh, yeah. just a coincidence. >> i didn't know that. way to go, brian. >> brian: you owe me four bucks. >> gretchen: all right. now your other headlines. another developing story for you this morning. we just learned that manti te'o is now admitting he lied about his fake girlfriend and her death. he tells katie couric the lie was just a brief one. >> this girl who i committed myself with died on september 12. now i get phone call on december 6 saying that she's alive and i'll be put on national tv two days later and they asked me
